GPS system offers 'Bike Down' option

Option dispatches help in case of emergency

By Motorcycle.com Staff, Oct. 20, 2008
Frenotec has announced nationwide distribution of a brand new motorcycle safety device providing a “Bike Down” feature that automatically dispatches help in the event of an emergency or accident.

In the unfortunate event that a “Bike Down”-equipped motorcycle is involved in an accident an alert is sent immediately to a 24-hour call center operated by MicroTRAKgps, a leader in GPS tracking and monitoring. Operators respond to “Bike Down” alarms and contact the rider via cell phone. If the rider is unable to answer, the operator will contact local authorities and direct emergency services to their location anywhere in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.

MicroTRAKgps also protects your bike from theft 24/7. The interactive GPS unit alerts you by text or email in the unlikely event your motorcycle is being stolen or moved outside your safe zone. The tracking system protects your motorcycle investment by allowing you to view the exact location of your motorcycle in real time via computer anywhere.   

MicroTRAKgps for motorcycles is totally waterproof, vibration proof, and heat resistant. It contains leading edge technology including a state of the art accelerometer, internal antenna, battery backup and sleep mode so it will not drain your battery. Its versatility and ease of installation enables you to use this device on all types of recreational vehicles, and can be moved from vehicle to vehicle, including motorcycles, scooters, ATV’s, dirt bikes and even snowmobiles.
